Gambia's friendly match with Seria A outfit Siena has been canceled, Foroyaa Sports can reveal.
According to an impeccable source, the proposed tie is cancelled due to problems on visa processing.
"I can confirm that the friendly is postponed till further notice" Normalisation Committee spokesperson and GFA's vice chairman Omar Sey disclosed to Foroyaa Sports yesterday evening and promised a dispatch would be issued to clarify the situation.
The friendly was lined up to avail Mancini and backroom staff an assessment of the team performance ahead of the Ivory Coast cracker next year.
The Scorpions under the guard of Italian gaffer Mancini -who barely understands a word of English - made a lacklustre start to his campaign losing to Tanzania and drawing Morocco in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
Gambia will have to brush off a star-studded Ivory Coast on both legs and Tanzania - a thing they must do if they harbour hopes of a maiden appearance in the World stage despite gloom and doom projections from critics using the Scorpion's early exit in the 2013 qualifiers as reference.
